Home of a mother, wife, writer

So, I took Monday off from writing(well, basically. I did finish off the chapter I’d been working on and I wrote a Story a Day piece). Tuesday I wrote over 3k on Flames of Knowledge. Then, I was able to get through the rest of my goals by the end of Thursday(actually I think it was by early afternoon). Which meant I was able to take Friday off as well. So, I think I will continue to do this.

      • Connor’s face flushed an even brighter red, which Ames hadn’t even thought possible, but nodded. What was so complicated? Either he liked them or not. Either he accepted them, and until today they’d thought he had, or he didn’t. It seemed pretty simple to Ames.

  1. Love love love the critter pics!

    And…I’m hoping to be able to get back to Stained Blood once May is over. I’ll still be writing in June, too, but it won’t have the same level of intensity as April and May. I’m looking forward to being able to finish it!
